Shoutweb.com spoke with Mushroomhead’s frontman J Mann to address the band’s image of simply following in the footsteps of Slipknot. J Mann explained, “We’ve been doing this for so long now that we can’t change who we are just because another band is doing the same thing. There is like no problem between the two bands though and I think Slipknot is a good band. There have been rumors of feuds between the two camps as our fans and theirs don’t really get along but its just stupid and we wanna put an end to it. When Slipknot rolled through town here Corey from Slipknot actually called our voice mail and had nothing but kind words for us and said he’d like to talk with us as there has been a lot of talk about a feud that isn’t coming from our side or his.” The entire interview at shoutweb.com has since been removed.
